Re: im connected to wifi but it's not working


Given your model number, I am guessing that you are on an older BB OS -- 5 or lower, I'd guess. As such, it is typical for those devices to require you to have adequate credit on your account with your mobile service provider to use even WiFi for any services at all, including internet browsing.

You might be able to use a 3rd party browser (e.g., Opera), but you will have to use a PC so as to install it to your BB.

Good luck!
